Nuclear Small Modular Reactors and Synthetic Fuels


May 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Brian Hunt’s presentation will explore GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy’s BWRX-300 Small Modular Reactor (SMR) nuclear power plant and its unique safety systems and approach to economical nuclear power.  We will also explore how 24/7 clean power has the potential to transform long-distance transportation with clean electricity, hydrogen, and carbon-neutral synthetic fuels (i.e. diesel and jet fuel).  This exciting potential can be achieved using only water and air as feedstocks.
